A new baby, the promotion, the new house - everything is finally going his way. A happy family and the comfortable life don't last long, though, once they start receiving visits from something that he does not understand. Or even believe.
His daughter, Little Olivia, is troubled by visions of a monster that only she can see.
He lurks in the shadows and lives on the edge of their perception, just out of sight, and sneaks in to steal the happiness from their dreams. But their frightening encounters with the unexplained serve only as a distraction, a break from the uncomfortable truth, will it be too late for him to realize what he has so easily forgotten?
Sometimes the things we need to fear most are closer than we expect.
Straddling the boundaries between horror, suspense, dark humor, and the bizarre - Ants In My Blood is a diverse collection featuring eighteen compelling tales from the author of Indifference and Daddy Monster.
Thirteen ways to remember the dead. Thirteen histories of a loving husband.
Betty Peppercorn is burning her husband Frank today. Well, she's burning her property. The corpse she was left with as a reward for loving somebody for better or worse. Frank exists only in her thoughts, anymore.
To her knowledge, Frank had no friends. Betty's not even sure he existed before they met. It comes as a major surprise, then, when several strange faces appear at the funeral, each of them bringing their own stories of what Frank meant to them.
As the day goes on, it becomes increasingly apparent that Frank was not the man she thought he was.
Thirteen new and established writers collide in this brand new novel-of-stories project from Ryan Bracha, the brains behind Twelve Mad Men, The Switched, and The Dead Man Trilogy. All proceeds will be donated to Alzheimer's charities.
